Migos’ Quavo shows off football skills from Gwinnett high school days

Turns out Migos rapper Quavo has more than one talent.

In a video posted by sports apparel store Champs, Quavo throws a football across a long parking lot and through a basketball hoop on his first try. But this was no fluke. Before he dropped out of Lilburn’s Berkmar High School to commit to music full-time, the “Bad and Boujee” rapper was the school’s starting quarterback. 

Then known as Quavious Marshall, he led the Berkmar Patriots’ 2009 squad, which ended the season with a 1-9 record. The Gwinnett Daily Post credited Marshall with the team’s lone win of the season, a homecoming game against Meadowcreek. One of Marshall’s touchdown passes in that game soared 65 yards.

Emory scammed by group posing as Migos bookers; rappers respond

While Quavo seems focused on the rap game for now, some wonder if another kind of game could be in his future. Quavo reposted a Photoshopped image of him as quarterback for the perennially bad Cleveland Browns from Bleacher Report on Wednesday, captioned “T H A C O M E B A C K.”
